Salicylic acid-based chemical peels are used for a range of skin concerns. This includes photodamage, acne scarring, melasma, and improved texture and tone. You may also benefit from blue peel radiance if you are skin type 4-6 with pigmentation.
The procedure will involve your skin being fully prepared using an Obagi cleanser and preparation solution. The acid-based peel solution will then be applied and left on your skin for up to 10 minutes. This may vary from person to person. Furthermore, post-treatment Obagi products will be applied to hydrate and protect the skin. You will leave the clinic wearing SPF 50 to protect your skin.
Salicylic acid is a chemical compound that is now synthesised. However, it originally was produced from the hormone salicin that comes from (among other plants) the bark of the willow tree.
Salicin has been long valued for its medicinal and antibacterial properties, as effective pain relief, and for reducing fever and inflammation.
The synthesised salicin extract used in a salicylic acid peel is an acid solution that, when applied topically to the skin, may reduce acne, blackheads, clogged pores, and congested (oily) skin.
Skin peels can also be effective treatments for scarring and fine lines and wrinkles.
